Tweens, Teens & Beyond #40

Good Morning and welcome to a very special edition of Tweens, Teens & Beyond hosted by myself and fellow parent and midlife bloggers Sharon at After The Playground and Nicky at Not Just The Three of Us.!

Last week, March 7th to be precise was our first birthday.  It is hard to believe that we have been up and running now for a whole year but it has been one full of fond memories and an array of wonderful posts.  I know I speak for us all when I say how proud we are of the lovely community we have built up and we look forward to going from strength to strength over the coming year.

Our favourite post from last week's link-up was Kelly at Daydreams of A Mum, one of most loyal linkers here at Tweens, Teens & Beyond.  Kelly's post The teens have got this is a passionate defence not only of teens and their quest to be heard but a supportive pledge for the group of US students speaking out against guns and standing up to Trump in the wake of yet another shooting.  If you missed it pop back for a read and whilst you are there give it another tweet.

Now onto this week. Please take some time to read the rules below if you are new to our linky or if you just need a reminder after the break. The most important thing is to share the linky love and remember to comment.

Tweens, Teens & Beyond #24

Tweens, Teens & Beyond #24

It's Tuesday which can only mean one thing - it is time for yet another week of Tweens, Teens & Beyond hosted by myself and fellow bloggers, Sharon at After The Playground and Nicky at Not Just The Three of Us.

I hope that everyone has had a happy and productive week.  My eldest teen was home from University for the weekend.  I am not quite sure what I was expecting after four weeks of not seeing him, but thinner wasn't one of them bizarrely, after all he is in catered accommodation.  Needless to say I spent the weekend fussing like an old mother hen and force feeding him at every opportunity.  As my husband says I wouldn't be happy unless I was worrying about one of my teens for some reason or another!

It is difficult to always find time to join link-ups so it was great to see some of our old linkers return last week Sharon at Everyone's Buck Stops Here and Janet at Falcondale Life. With another varied and creative selection of posts nominating a favourite was tough but we would like to give a special shout out this week to Shailaja from Diary of A Doting Mum with her post on the Power of Silence.  I am sure as parents this is one that we will all identify with as Shailaja talks about overcoming our instinct to nag our children to get on with their studies and to use the power of silence to communicate a point. I have to confess I find this a tough one to implement but sometimes less is more!  Do pop over and take a read.

Now onto this week.

Please take some time to read the rules below before linking and please remember the golden rule of blogging is to share the linky love and remember to comment.  We look forward to reading your posts.

Tweens, Teens & Beyond #22

Hello, I am now firmly back on British soil and glad to be hosting another week of Tweens, Teens & Beyond with my co-hosts Sharon at After The Playground and Nicky at Not Just The Three Of Us.

We are always delighted that so many of you take the time to drop by and share your posts. We have a die-hard set of loyal UK linkers who have been with us since the early days as well as many others around the blogging globe and we are all very grateful for your continued support.  It is always nice too to welcome more new linkers each week.  Please do keep spreading the word and help us to grow the community some more.

Our shout out post from last week goes to Not Just Another Mum and her post on safety in London.  As a Londoner I like many others feel the need to continue life as normal in the wake of all the atrocities but I would be lying if I said that with teenagers travelling around the city on a daily basis I don't worry.  I do but we cannot bring up our children in an environment of fear.  Do pop over, have a read and share the love if you haven't already.

Now onto this week.

Tweens, Teens & Beyond #5

Good Morning and welcome back to the fifth week of linky Tweens, Teens Beyond hosted by myself and my fellow Tween and Teen bloggers Sharon at After The Playground and Nicky at Not Just The Three of Us.

The Easter Holidays are here and with it the usual excessive chocolate eating and in some cases, exam revision.  Yes the exam season is just around the corner so if you are parent to a revising teen over Easter, Good Luck and Stay Calm!

Our linky community is going from strength to strength with new bloggers joining us each week and last week was no exception with new to us linkers Em Linthorpe, Edie's Eden and Raising My Autistic Son.  Welcome to you all.

Our favourite link from last week was Midlife Drama In Pyjamas, with her truly hilarious post "You Want Me To Pee In That?" .  The title speaks for itself really - do take a read if you haven't already.

With the Easter Holidays upon us we will be extending this fifth linky from 4th - 20th April to allow time for everyone to link up and comment at their leisure over the holiday period and we will be back with a new linky on Tuesday 25th April.   In the meantime HAPPY EASTER.
